recording of Comic History of England, by Bill Nye.
Edgar Wilson "Bill" Nye (1850 – 1896) was a distinguished American journalist, who later became widely known as a humorist. Jim "jimmowatt" Mowatt is a distinguished LibriVox volunteer, widely known for his continued devotion both to regularly producing the LibriVox Community Podcast and to regularly creating more and more history audiobooks for the public domain, renowned for his humor and his historically kind demeanor, lately recognized as holding a degree as well as a mic. In light of that new holding, in celebration of graduation, this bit of history has been recorded with Jim in mind, owing to all that we owe him, glowing with glee that we know him, it's what we've done just to show him that he's a jolly good fellow.
